# After Singapore 5B what do we do?

## Recommended Posts

DD1 by her current pace will be done with Singapore 5b by the end of summer (2013). In addtion to Singapore she uses ALecks and Evan-Moor basic Math grade 5. Where should we go after this point?:bigear:

DS is likely to do the same and he'll start AoPS pre-Algebra. If AoPS is too much and he needs more practice, he'll work through 6A and 6B.

AoPS? Not familiar with this one.

Art of Problem Solving. I'm not familiar with any other pre-algebra programs as I'm hoping AoPS will work out, but I may be researching the boards in a few months.

AoPS is Art of Problem Solving. :001_smile:

We went to AoPS Pre-Algebra after 5B.

For those of you who answered AOPS, why are you skipping SM 6A&6B? Ds8 is about to start 5A and I have been planning on starting AOPS after Singapore.

We did 6A and B at a quick pace and then went to NEM, then to AoPS.

AoPS Prealgebra comes after Singapore 5B. If you use 6A/6B, you can go straight to AoPS Algebra.

There have been several discussions that 6A and 6B don't introduce new concepts so much as go further in depth, like a good pre-algebra program should. I see this in 4A and 4B and after previewing MM5, I see the same.

Here's few discussions:

Did you read this on the AOPS website? I've seen some threads on the AL board, but nothing definitive.

Thank you! I'm especially interested in the last thread, but all three look informative.

I emailed AoPS, and Richard R. (not butchering his name on my phone) emailed back. I posted it to one of the threads asking about it - might be one of the ones mentioned by the PP.

Thank you for the replys and links to other threads. I look forward to reading more indepth once the kids go to bed tonight. I had read a while back that 6a and 6b are more depth and not really new concept. My child gets concepts and depth quickly and gets board with repetition for repetitions sake.

Post #44 in the first link she posted.

I did see that, but he didn't seem sure either. I'll be interested to hear how your ds does. The last thread convinced me more to stick with 6A&6B. Before AOPS PreAlgebra came out, I was planning on doing Russian Math 6 in between SM 6 and AOPS Algebra. I think it would be different if my ds were older. He'll still be 8 when we finish SM5B. I know your are in the same boat.
